“I don’t know if I’ll have kids. It’s impossible not to picture certain scenarios and how you would try to convince them that they have a normal life when, inevitably, there will be strange men pointing giant cameras at them from the time they are babies. I’m too young to get married. Not agewise, but I know myself, so why try to meet someone right now when I know I’m too young to do something serious?” - Taylor Swift for InStyle magazine 2014

“One thing I’ve learned is your life is your life, it’s not what people write about your life and it’s not what everyone’s perception of what your life is. I never want to turn into that person who says to whoever I may be seeing or thinking about going on a date with: “Let’s not go to dinner in public tonight because that might get written about.” I don’t want to let the fact that people are watching me change the course of my actions in relationships.”

“My girlfriends and I talk a lot about feminism and the inequality between the way men and women are talked about, the kind of things we say are, ‘Why is it mischievous, fun and sexy if a guy has a string of lovers that he’s cast aside; loved and left? Yet if a woman dates three or four people in an eight-year period she is a serial dater and it gives some 12-year-old the idea to call her a ‘slut’ on the internet?’ It’s not the same for boys, it just isn’t and that’s a fact.”

“I get it that not everyone’s going to like everything that you do, and I get that no matter what you’re going to be criticized by somebody. But I also get that there are different kinds of ways to criticize someone. There’s constructive criticism, there’s professional criticism, and then there’s just being mean. And there’s a line that you cross when you just start to attack everything about a person. And there’s one guy man, that just crossed the line over and over again, by just being mean.”

                               But I keep cruising

                   Can’t stop, won’t stop moving

                            It’s like I got this music

                                  In my mind

                               saying, “It’s gonna be alright.”
